        Here's an example of 'dt' reading and comparing the first
        100 megabytes of the IOT test disc.  Slow I/O due to RRD42!

The IOT data pattern can be used with any device/file. Here's an example of what the IOT data pattern looks like. The logical block address (lba) is placed in the first 4 bytes, then each remaining u_int gets (lba += 0x01010101). - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - linux% dt of=- count=1 pattern=iot lba=0x64 disable=stats | od -Ax -tx1 000000 64 00 00 00 65 01 01 01 66 02 02 02 67 03 03 03 000010 68 04 04 04 69 05 05 05 6a 06 06 06 6b 07 07 07 000020 6c 08 08 08 6d 09 09 09 6e 0a 0a 0a 6f 0b 0b 0b 000030 70 0c 0c 0c 71 0d 0d 0d 72 0e 0e 0e 73 0f 0f 0f 000040 74 10 10 10 75 11 11 11 76 12 12 12 77 13 13 13 000050 78 14 14 14 79 15 15 15 7a 16 16 16 7b 17 17 17 000060 7c 18 18 18 7d 19 19 19 7e 1a 1a 1a 7f 1b 1b 1b 000070 80 1c 1c 1c 81 1d 1d 1d 82 1e 1e 1e 83 1f 1f 1f 000080 84 20 20 20 85 21 21 21 86 22 22 22 87 23 23 23 000090 88 24 24 24 89 25 25 25 8a 26 26 26 8b 27 27 27 0000a0 8c 28 28 28 8d 29 29 29 8e 2a 2a 2a 8f 2b 2b 2b 0000b0 90 2c 2c 2c 91 2d 2d 2d 92 2e 2e 2e 93 2f 2f 2f 0000c0 94 30 30 30 95 31 31 31 96 32 32 32 97 33 33 33 0000d0 98 34 34 34 99 35 35 35 9a 36 36 36 9b 37 37 37 0000e0 9c 38 38 38 9d 39 39 39 9e 3a 3a 3a 9f 3b 3b 3b 0000f0 a0 3c 3c 3c a1 3d 3d 3d a2 3e 3e 3e a3 3f 3f 3f 000100 a4 40 40 40 a5 41 41 41 a6 42 42 42 a7 43 43 43 000110 a8 44 44 44 a9 45 45 45 aa 46 46 46 ab 47 47 47 000120 ac 48 48 48 ad 49 49 49 ae 4a 4a 4a af 4b 4b 4b 000130 b0 4c 4c 4c b1 4d 4d 4d b2 4e 4e 4e b3 4f 4f 4f 000140 b4 50 50 50 b5 51 51 51 b6 52 52 52 b7 53 53 53 000150 b8 54 54 54 b9 55 55 55 ba 56 56 56 bb 57 57 57 000160 bc 58 58 58 bd 59 59 59 be 5a 5a 5a bf 5b 5b 5b 000170 c0 5c 5c 5c c1 5d 5d 5d c2 5e 5e 5e c3 5f 5f 5f 000180 c4 60 60 60 c5 61 61 61 c6 62 62 62 c7 63 63 63 000190 c8 64 64 64 c9 65 65 65 ca 66 66 66 cb 67 67 67 0001a0 cc 68 68 68 cd 69 69 69 ce 6a 6a 6a cf 6b 6b 6b 0001b0 d0 6c 6c 6c d1 6d 6d 6d d2 6e 6e 6e d3 6f 6f 6f 0001c0 d4 70 70 70 d5 71 71 71 d6 72 72 72 d7 73 73 73 0001d0 d8 74 74 74 d9 75 75 75 da 76 76 76 db 77 77 77 0001e0 dc 78 78 78 dd 79 79 79 de 7a 7a 7a df 7b 7b 7b 0001f0 e0 7c 7c 7c e1 7d 7d 7d e2 7e 7e 7e e3 7f 7f 7f 000200 linux%
